In light of the current circumstances efforts are underway to alter processes to ensure that the planning department can run as effectively as possible. As it stands all delegated applications are being validated, assessed and determined as normal, wherever possible. Timescales on applications are therefore unaffected unless an extension of time has been agreed between parties.
Further, all comments in relation to live planning applications must be submitted via Planning Online or by email to the above address. Should you have any questions please speak to the relevant Case Officer.
